College students invited to apply for Illinois Tollway 2023 internships
There are more career opportunities available in the transportation industry than just engineers, planners and traffic managers. There are also opportunities in traditional office professions such as IT, HR and finance, as well as in warehouse positions and the skilled trades.
That’s why the Illinois Tollway is offering college students and recent graduates summer internships in a variety of departments, as well as full-year internships in engineering and business systems. Eligible students can apply online on the Tollway’s website through March 31.
“The Illinois Tollway is a great place to work with many different career paths,” said Illinois Tollway Executive Director Cassaundra Rouse, “so the Tollway 2023 Internship Program will offer a diverse group of students firsthand experiences and on-the-job training in a wide range of jobs, as well as mentoring by some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the transportation business.”
Students interested in learning more about the Tollway’s Internship Program can sign up for one of two online information sessions or view a recording of the session in the Careers section on the Tollway’s website:

The Tollway’s paid internships include a 10-week summer Professional Services Internship that begins June 1. Students will be assigned to one of seven Tollway departments, including Administration, Facilities and Fleet, Finance, Information Technology, Planning, Toll Operations and Traffic and Incident Management.
The Engineering Cooperative Education Internship provides instruction on the three phases of a project – planning, design and construction. The Engineering Co-Op and Business Systems internships run from June 2023 through May 2024.
“We are committed to building a pipeline of new engineers and our goal is to help develop the next generation of working professionals with skills necessary to launch careers within the transportation industry,” said Rouse.
